My dad was complaining about the lack of variety when it comes to food in Calicut and I do agree, to a certain extent. Most restaurants serve local cuisines apart from a few like M Grill, Brown Town, etc. Berry Bomb in Cherooty Road (@eatberrybomb) calls itself an Italian restaurant and to find out if it really was, the missus @sareekaasok and I dropped by for a late evening snack. The main seating is upstairs and they have done a good job decorating up the pp place. The menu is by no means Italian and we got down to the serious business of ordering. For starters, we ordered the "Chilli Garlic Potato Balls" (Rs.80), "Cheese Meatballs" (Rs.290) & "Cheese Fries" (Rs. 150). The potato balls had no taste of garlic or chili and had no real flavour to it. The Cheese Meatballs on the other hand was appetizing. The cheese came oozing out from the centre and complimented the spicy meatball and tomato sauce. And yes they were deep fried and they still managed to keep it moist. The cheese fries weren't too bad either. The "Batter Fried Fish" (Rs. 270) from their special dine menu could have been better but I still enjoyed the fish. It felt like frozen fish because of the consistency but the batter was really good and lemon butter and tartar side gave it more depth. For drinks, we ordered the "Pomogranette Lemon Mint" (Rs. 150) and the "Ginger Lemon Fizz" (Rs. 110) and they were both worth the money we paid. Oh and we got a 10% discount for dining between 7pm to 12am. Thanks @eatberrybomb and a special shoutout to Kyber for the friendly service. #foodwithshayne#kozhikode#calicut#kozhikoden#eatberrybomb
Good morning my friends, did you already had your morning coffee today or not yet?☕ Ok, if not let’s see some tips to turn your coffee from healthy to super healthy! If, yes keeping reading for the next time!💛💚 1. Choose a Quality Brand, Preferably Organic. If you are worried about pesticide contamination in your coffee, choose a quality, organic brand. 2. Add Some Cinnamon to Your Coffee. 📚Studies show that cinnamon can lower blood glucose, cholesterol & triglycerides in diabetics. So, spice your coffee with a dash of cinnamon, not only does it taste good, it also improve your health. 3. Do Not Load Your Coffee With Sugar. Although coffee is healthy in itself, you can easily turn it into something harmful, so avoid adding sugar to your coffee. 4. No Caffeine After 2 P.M. Drinking coffee late in the day could be impairing your sleep quality. Poor sleep is associated with all sorts of health problems, so for this reason, it’s important not to drink coffee late in the day. 5. Avoid Drinking Too Much. While a moderate intake of coffee is healthy, drinking too much may reduce its overall benefits. However, this depends on the amount of caffeine consumed and individual tolerance. 6. Avoid Low-Fat and Artificial Creamers. Non-dairy creamers are highly processed & may contain questionable ingredients. If you like diluting your coffee with a creamer, consider choosing whole milk or cream. 7. Add Some Cocoa to Your Coffee. Cocoa is loaded with antioxidants & associated with all sorts of health benefits, including a reduced risk of heart disease. You can combine the benefits of coffee & dark chocolate by adding a dash of cocoa powder to your coffee. How do you like your coffee? Have an amazing and productive Week my friends!😘💖 by ✨@balermanutrition . . . #coffeetime #coffeelovers#plantpower#vscofood#goodeats#happyandhealthy#feedfeed#fitfood#mindbodyfeed#onmytable#beautifulcuisines
Healthier Chocolate Zucchini Muffins made with whole grain flour (@eatgrain Red Fife ~ not sponsored), 2 cups of Zucchini, and chia seeds for those omegas any parent might be wanting to work into their kids diets. ✨ I didn’t want to share them too soon as I amended the recipe after testing them with honey (refined sugar-free) and got them down to a very minimal amount of sweetener at all. Any which way you decide to go with the sugar situation, these are still mighty tasty and keep well in the fridge and freezer. Perfect for this school week ahead 😜 or if you’re like me as a pre-soccer game snack ⚽️🍫❤️. * * https://www.mykitchenlove.com/healthier-chocolate-zucchini-muffins/ direct link in in profile. * #zucchini

I thought I understood this quote back in college. Now, as a wife, mom, and small business owner, I appreciate this on a deeper level but I know that I don’t fully grasp it. I know the future holds both heartache and rejoicing and I’m grateful to have the perspective of embracing whatever trials head my way, knowing that I will be a better woman after it passes.
